Christmas Roast

READY IN: 2hrs 50mins
Recipe by rusted_essence

My soon to be in-laws have been vegetarian for longer than my boyfriend has been alive. They eat morning star for meat. I will admit that is good stuff, well sometimes, but not the real deal. I was given a huge roast this past Christmas and told to cook it. I was severed from the land of high speed internet, so I winged it and the results were to die for. The meat was tender and the veggies perfect, and the sauce left behind was great to put over the meat and well everything else in my opinion.

*there must be a mistake in this recipe. I cut the amount of balsamic vinegar in HALF, from two cups to one cup. Even so, I should have known better! It totally ruined the vegetables and made the meat taste funny as well. Should it be two Tablespoons????
